Wine of the Week AU

Dexter Pinot Noir 2017, Mornington Peninsula, AUD $60

Another fine pinot from this consistent Merricks North vineyard. Deep, bright red/purple colour leads into a vibrant, fresh cherry aroma with background spices and traces of herbs. The palate is intense, precise and vibrant, with a long carry. A gorgeous pinot that will drink well for many years. (Screwcap)
